Looks like you got the 5x7 of desire street?

Shoot from above. It will work better. I have some 5x7 serendipity doors and that is how I pull it off.

Its the 6x8, they were having a good sale, although not as good as a couple months earlier, kicking myself for missing that one. :)

Shoot from above, thanks. :)

What types of flooring is good for that drop?

I have wood paneling I just put down *way to much work* and a brick pavement type look that is in that picture. I plan on getting some tiles that looks like a worn down cement/sidewalk/paved area. Lowes has been my friend the last couple of weeks. If I ever move my studio the wood flooring is going to be a pain to move! I had to get some 4x8 particle boards so I could nail the wood down to keep them from moving. :)

does the door seem to small, did denny design the door to be printed as a 20x10 or something and fail to mention it looks silly when printed as a 6x8?

This is what has kept me from nabbing one of the freedom cloth backdrops like that. I had a feeling the proportions would be off on the printed things like doors. Seeing this picture confirms my suspicion.

Ah, but a larger size and it works well. I have it in the 8x10 and it's one of my faves.

Scott I like the last one the best. In #2 you need to move her little closer or back so as to avoid direct sun on the face. Or block the sun with a flag.

Good point, thanks. I will pay close attention to that next time :)

This. anything with a door and your gonna need an 8x10 to make it look realistic.. call denny. They should let you send it back.

QUOTED IMAGE

This one is great. Simple, strong composition...nice light, gorgeous bokeh, great styling and expression. "A" in my book.

Personally I think #1 need more light, be a reflector or a flash.

I know I cant afford an 8x10, im wondering if I should keep it and shoot from a higher angle like tiff recommended, at least avoid the top of the door so it doesnt look as short?
